Confession Time:

I have been a Trekkie (or, Trekkor, as the geeks at the Star Trek conventions say---I have been to one...) since I was a child---probably about the same time I started watching the Steelers!

I can't wait to see the new movie...as I have posted before, it took a while for me to get into "The Next Generation", but I ended up loving that , too.

IMO, Karl Urban is a great actor---loved him in The Lord Of The Rings

The reviewer in the local paper said that before his FIRST screening was even over he was thinking to himself "I'm going to see this again".

Alas, I have yet to see it...maybe this weekend...I'm a Trek fan, but not fanatic, and I liked Abrams work on "Cloverfield" a lot.

There is one thing, though - they say that you don't have to be a Star Trek fan to see this movie. If that's the case, then why did the guy two seats down from me keep leaning over and asking me why everyone was laughing? Because clearly, there were a lot of jokes and references aimed directly at the Trekkies in the audience.

Also - for those who haven't seen the movie yet, if or when you go, keep an eye out for the Randy Pausch cameo. It's very "blink and you'll miss it," but it's there. They even gave him a line. The only reason why I caught it was because I was looking.

But maybe that's why he kicked all that alien butt as he got older. Because he got it kicked as a youth! Just saying...

No, you absolutely don't have to be a Star Trek fan to see this movie!

Why were they laughing? There were no "jokes" per se, but when you saw the "mannerisms" and heard the old familiar one-liners associated with each of the characters, it tickled our fond memory banks. It was nostalgic, that's all, and it made us LOL to see it acted out so well while remembering all those classic lines!

Just about everyone nailed their characters, but you didn't have to know the characters previously to enjoy each of their separate personalities and how they clicked.

I think this sounds great. My sister loved it. I've been saddened to watch the original character growing older and passing away. I love the concept of going backwards with the story with fresh ideas. I loved Star Trek, even the bad movies were fubn to watch.

We may see this on Sunday or maybe Angels and Demons. It's hubby's choice.......tomorrow's his birthday.
